This review is not about a particular film I saw at the Screen, but just a shout out to a small, independent theater that does a great job providing what I consider to be necessary art films that stimulate in ways other than and, to me, more importantly than, the big box office blockbuster action films do. The theater is... More

We have seen probably half a dozen movies a year at this wonderful venue. It's never crowded, they get special titles you won't see in the multiplex, and it feels a bit like you're in a big city art house.

The theater is a little difficult to find but once you are there, it is very easy to get through paying and in to your seat. Like has been said, good sound, good view, good audience, and unusual films. I saw "Locke" and loved it. I don't know that it will be shown anywhere else I am. I am glad... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how modern the facilities are The Screen. Incredibly tidy and well kept. Not your typical audience, e.g. they are there to watch the film.

We literally stumbled onto this little arts theater while touring the campus of Santa Fe University of Art and Design. We walked inside and purchased tickets for "Le Weekend" and were soo glad we did. The movie was laugh out loud hilarious, thought provoking, with moments of poignant, painful revelation. The staff were very friendly and (gasp) happy to answer... More

The Screen is located on the Santa Fe University of Art and Design campus, hidden back among other campus buildings, rather far from the main entrance on St. Michael's Drive. The seats are comfortable, with good leg room. The auditorium is nicely raked so that every seat has a good view of the screen. The sound system is very good,... More

A well considered selection of films that won't make it to the multiplex. A small but well run theater.

The curator here negotiates for great films including the nominations for best Oscar shorts! With comfortable seats, senior rated and multiple visit discount cards this is a treasure!

This unpretentious venue is perfect for those seeking a more intimate, relaxed viewing experience. On the campus of Santa Fe College of Art and Design, The Screen has excellent sound on a large screen without the commercialism of today's usual cinema experience. For those seeking the more unique, independent film experience, The Screen is well worth a visit! We thoroughly... More
